Advancing the Gospel Together

Visit ADVANCE for resources. The purpose of this campaign is to retire the debt on our new building so we can Advance the Gospel together by continuing to support church plants in the 32 SEND Cities.

Why SEND Cities? We can reach the nations by starting right here in North America - one person, one neighborhood, one community at a time. The North American Mission Board (NAMB) Send Network has identified four areas of focus with great kingdom potential: major cities with high population density and diversity, college communities filled with students preparing to disperse throughout the world, military communities where the culture is unique and the congregations are transient, and strategic areas. Each presents distinct challenges and unique opportunities.
